Product Description

Developed in collaboration with guitarist and historian Eric Schoenberg, the Recording King O and OO guitars (RP1-626 and RP2-626) offer players the even frequency response, clarity and wider neck traditional to a classic parlor style, but the unique addition of a cutaway gives fingerstyle guitarists easier access to the upper frets. On both the RP1-626 and RP2-626, the one-piece mahogany neck with a classic v-profile meets the body at the 12-fret with a hand cut dovetail joint, giving these guitars a true small body sound, warm and rich, but perfectly balanced. The solid AAA Engelmann spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides have been carefully selected and hand-assembled. With a 1-3/4” nut width, Grover tuners, ebony fretboard and ebony pyramid bridge, these O and OO guitars are as well-appointed and unique as they are beautiful. Each guitar is sprayed with a thin coat of nitrocellulose lacquer and then hand-buffed for a finish that is extremely resonant and historically accurate. The RP1-626 and RP2-626 models have Recording King's lifetime warranty. More about the collaboration: Eric Schoenberg’s influence on guitar marries traditional fingerstyle playing to classic ragtime and walking basslines. His “Fingerpicking Beatles” book is considered an essential text for modern fingerstyle players. Mr. Schoenberg prefers the 12-fret cutaway because he believes the 12-fret neck joint gives the guitars a gutsier voice, yet the cutaway is not so deep that it takes away from the sound. As Schoenberg describes it, the Recording King O and OO guitars offer the best of both a 12-fret and a 14-fret neck joint, thanks to the cutaway. Schoenberg explains his decision to work with Recording King on these guitars in this way: “When the (Recording King) ROS-626 model came out, I saw it and said, the quality is excellent, the style is great; a collaboration on something similar is just what I’ve been looking for.”

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Me and Tika on April 10, 2012
I purchased an RP1-626-C used and while I think the price new is a reasonably good value, the price for a used RP1 is an outstanding value. I am exclusively a fingerstyle player, and I play with three modified Alaska Piks on my fingers and a modified Kelly Slick Pick on my thumb.

The good:

Sound and playability. This guitar has an honest and warm sound which is balanced and clear throughout the registers. The top is quick to respond to fingerstyle playing and the tone favors the midrange (string choice plays a factor here, of course). The neck profile, nut width and saddle spacing contribute to top-notch ergonomics for both hands. As a matter of fact, my opinion is that the "Schoenberg V" profile of this neck makes it among the most user friendly I have ever encountered over decades of playing guitars. The profile is as good, and maybe slightly better, than the profile on my beloved Collings OM.

The not-so-good:

Fit and finish issues, notably a bridge that has started to lift ($120 repair) and the Grover tuners seem to slip a bit over a short period of time.

In summary, the RP1-626-C is a serious, professional musical instrument at a price (particularly used) that is within reach of practically anyone. I can forgive the manufacturing glitches in light of the way this guitar performs as a musical instrument. If you are used to other guitar body styles, like the dreadnought for example, my advice would be to take the time to learn how to get the most from this guitar. It has a lot to offer!


A problem has surfaced - the bridge has developed a crack. The cause, I am told, is a very tall saddle combined with a thin bridge. That is, there is not a lot of wood between the saddle slot and the edge of the bridge.
